Rockets sign Brandon Sampson

The Houston Rockets have signed free agent guard Brandon Sampson.

The deal is likely non-guaranteed and will probably only last through preseason, which ends in a few days.

Sampson (6-5, 184) was eligible for the 2018 NBA Draft following his junior season at Louisiana State. He played for Atlanta in both the Utah Jazz Summer League and the NBA Summer League in Las Vegas. Following his senior year of high school in 2015, Sampson was named Mr. Basketball in the state of Louisiana.
